    Washington Square is the colonial heart of Newport including the old 1739 Colony house which served as the home of the Rhode Island Colonial and state Legislature until the capital was moved to Providence.

    The area that is considered Historic Hill here in Newport is located around the Washington Square area and is a district with some fine historic homes and landmarks.

    This area of Newport is quite nice and conveniently located close to all the major attractions here in Newport. Some fo the historic landmarks and homes you will find here are the Colony House, the Army-Navy YMCA building, Touro Synagogue, Old State House (or Old Courthouse), United Baptist Church and a few others.

    The area has a really nice park and one of our favorite restaurant bars is also located in this are.

Some of the attractions are: The Colony House, Touro Synagogue, Brick Market, Army/Navy building and many others. We often stay in this section of Newport and enjoy wandering around on foot to explore the area.
